The house was built for John McLean, pastor of First Presbyterian Church, according to city records. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 primarily on its later affiliation with descendants of David Davis, who served as a U.S. Senator, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice and Abraham Lincoln's campaign manager at the 1860 Republican convention.
